Paul Reubens appeared on The Jay Leno Show as famous children’s show character Pee-Wee Herman.
Reubens–dressed in his trademark Pee-Wee Herman grey suit and red bowtie–was on the late night program to promote his new stage show The Pee-Wee Herman Show.
Reubens also had a stage show of the same name in the 1980’s.
Reubens, best known for the wildly popular kid’s show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, gleefully sat down with Leno and immediately showed the audience what looked to be a wedding ring.
“You got married?” Leno asked.
“Oh no,” Reubens replied, in his classic high-pitched Pee-Wee voice. “It’s my abstience ring.”
As Pee-Wee Herman, Reubens discussed his father, childhood, and school days.
Later, the conversation turned to food, and Pee-Wee and Jay walked over to a salad bar set up on the Leno stage. While Herman attempted to offer some vegetables to the late night host, Jay stated, “anything grown from the earth I’m not a real fan of.”
“Kind of limits things,” Herman retorted.
While making French Fries, an exuberant Herman stated that his upcoming stage show has sold so many tickets that the venue was changed to accommodate more people.
